Hyderabad:
Considering the demands of farmers, who will lose land under Mallanna
Sagar project, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhara Rao has agreed to
compensate the land oustees in a manner that is agreeable to them.

KCR held
a review meeting on Mallanna Sagar Project and land issues here on
Saturday. Major Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao and other officials
participated in the review meeting. KCR said that land acquisition
under Mallanna Sagar Project can be done through two methods -- by
invoking the Land Acquisition Act-2013 or through GO: 123.

KCR
said: “The State government is ready to compensate farmer in the
way they want. Farmers can choose compensation as per either Land
Acquisition Act- 2013 or GO: 123. Whatever method farmers want, the
government will honor it. If some farmers want compensation under
Land Acquisition Act-2013, the government will consider it. If some
opt for GO:123, we’re ready to honor it also.”

TRS came
under severe pressure as opposition parties which have extended
support to the farmers. Revenue experts opine that farmers will be at
loss if they opt for Land Acquisition Act-2013.

However,
the government did not give any clarity on the land value based on
which the compensation would be given under the Land Acquisition Act
2013.

Recently
Harish Rao said the TRS government was ready to give house for house,
school for school and temple for temple as desired by the people.
Land oustees will also get a share in the income generated through
fish farming after the construction of Mallanna Sagar Project.

As per
the GO:123 issued by the government, a farmer losing an acre of land
with a bore in it will be paid Rs 7 lakh as compensation. A farmer
without a bore in his acre of would be paid Rs 5.8 lakh. Apart from
this cash component, the displaced family will get a double bedroom
house as part of TRS government’s housing scheme.
